Oak Lawn Center-Based ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA therapy is conducted by a Oak Lawn Center based Behavior therapist that works under the supervision of a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA). Before therapy begins, your BCBA seeks the root of understanding the learning, emotional challenges or environmental triggers that underlie problematic behaviors. With the final observation from this assessment, a care plan is created.

Our Oak Lawn Center features:

  • No waitlist
  • Multiple group spaces to work on peer skills and simulate school activities (ie. circle time, classroom and the gym)
  • Large gym area
  • Located next to Children’s Museum of Oak Lawn which is used for practicing in the community
  • Speech and Occupational Therapist partners who come to the center

What can you find in the behavior plan?

A behavior plan contains thoughtfully chosen established procedures for teaching new skills that seek to reduce problematic behaviors. Therapists located in Oak Lawn Center use a variety of approaches supported by research to build verbal and adaptive skills. Additionally, our BCBAs train caregivers on how to respond to everyday learning, emotional and behavioral challenges and how to reinforce the skills developed during therapy sessions.

What to expect

When you enlist the help of our professional ABA Therapy professionals at Key Autism Services, or when you reach out to us for more information, you can expect a qualified and dedicated behavior therapist to reach out to you to learn more about your individual status and needs including insurance information and benefits.

ABA, Applied Behavior Analysis, is the discipline that studies human behavior and aims to improve social behavior by implementing the fundamental techniques of the learning theory.

Applied Behavior Analysis therapy builds on the principles of learning. This approached is often used to help individuals diagnosed with Autism develop their communication, social and learning skills.

Our professionals delve into the details and possible triggers that might be setting off certain problematic behaviors. We work to help the child find more positive ways of reacting to triggers and helping them replace the negative behaviors with positive tactics.

Analysts evaluate your child via assessments and help them set specific goals to work towards. We’ll help your child develop new skills, advance previously learned skills, and decrease problems in social behavior.
